Sustainable Neighbourhood Retrofit Action Plan

The Sustainable Neighbourhood Retrofit Action Plan (SNAP) is a program to help established communities become more environmentally friendly and prepare for climate change, one neighbourhood at a time. The SNAP process brings together residents, businesses, community groups and government agencies to develop a science-based action plan for change. Visit the SNAP website for more information.

The SNAPs find ways to improve rain water management, increase trees and create wildlife habitat, and conserve energy and drinking water across both public and private lands. The plans also recommend ways to get more people interested and involved in existing energy and water conservation programs, and encourage them to make their lawns and homes more environmentally friendly. In support of this, each SNAP will make the business case for “going green” and illustrate cost savings and larger social and environmental benefits of sustainable neighbourhood action.
